Turkey and fixins needed

Public donations of food sought for Thanksgiving meal at Upper Room Mission

Greater Vernon residents can help ensure those less fortunate have a Thanksgiving to celebrate.

The Upper Room Mission is currently seeking assistance for its Thanksgiving meal Oct. 8.

“If there is anyone wanting to know how they can partner with us, they could donate a turkey, potatoes, frozen vegetables or disposable dishes,” said Lisa Froom, general manager.

“Every little bit helps and we would be most appreciative.”

There are enough volunteers to help prepare and serve the meal.

The mission provided a Thanksgiving meal to 179 people last year.

For more information or to donate, call 250-549-1231 or drop by the Upper Room Mission at 3403 27th Ave.
